My Charlotte roof needs new shingles
Last week north Greenboro neighbor had mentioned to me that he needed to replace many asphalt shingles, and maybe his whole roof; which caused to me realize that I most likely needed to replace my asphalt shingles as well. Our homes were practically built at the same time by the same contractor. If his roof was that bad off, mine must be as well. Sure enough, I took a look at my roof and I noticed some missing shingles and several patches where a group of shingles had begun to curl. Most people lack the know-how replacing shingles and the rest of us are never getting up on that roof. This definitely is a job for the professionals.
A roof can last for a long time provided they are well maintained; replacing one may put a hole on your pocket, but that is the reality, especially if your home is occasionally ravaged by storms causing a cumulative effect of damage in a few short years.
